To answer this question, multiply two times the number of students in the class, which is 18. Since 18 x 2 = 36, Dima wants to buy 36 donuts for her students to ensure that each gets two.

There are 18 students in Dima's class.
Dima wants 2 times as many donuts as the number of students in her class.
This means Dima wants to purchse purchse 2 times the number of students in her class.
So Dima wnats purchse 18*2 = 36 donuts as it 2times the number of students in her class.
The answer of 3 dozen doughnuts (36) is correct, according to the question. But I always think of the "outside the box" variables... what about the teacher and teacher aide?! While Dima will have to buy 3 dozen doughnuts for the class, I would buy 3-1/2 dozen which would include doughnuts for teacher, aide, and Dima herself! ;p
